The fantastical genius of the Strauss score and the Hofmannsthal libretto will be interpreted by conductor Vladimir Jurowski and a thrilling cast. Anne Schwanewilms and Torsten Kerl are the otherworldly Empress and Emperor, and Johan Reuter is Barak. Christine Goerke, the rising dramatic soprano star, returns to the Met as the Dyer’s Wife, whose shadow the Empress must win to free herself from a fatal decree.</p><p> Mon, 10 Feb 2014 22:08:46 +0000 NHPR Staff 43323 at http://nhpr.org Metropolitan Opera 2014 Broadcast Schedule The Metropolitan Opera - Live In HD http://nhpr.org/post/metropolitan-opera-live-hd <p>This Saturday, the Metropolitan Opera’s “Live in HD” series will broadcast worldwide.
